    I would like to put my ‘two cents worth’ on the new Covid-19 cases which has sprung up as follows:

    We Sri Lankans have shown high level of resilience while in this land. As I have written here before I and even my entire family may have got it last December unknowingly. I an old person got only a flue like feeling while others got fewer and were confined to the house for a few days.
    The new cases are springing up in various places, which are all economic centers like EPZs, harbours, and places connected with tourism. Poor farmers who are down to earth people ( well earthed as they are barefooted) not seem to be affected at all. So, is this not an attack using Covid as a bio weapon on Sri Lankan State to make it weak and vulnerable?. Then only the perpetrators can have their own way.

    If anybody is doing it, they are sadly mistaken. Every time it came into the country mostly though minorities (and one or two tourists) into their ghettos, it did not spread more than two levels. And it did not go into the community also. There is some protection to the inhabitants via the environment plus the BCG that has been given to every citizen of this country. So I am sure our heroic forces and police together with medics will fight it out this time too.

    On the virus itself my thinking is that either it will disappear gradually as it did in the two previous hundred year cycles in three years or so or the humanity will find a remedy shortly. Also, I have seen our famous teacher, Tissa sir, explaining that the viruses are a cross between a material and a living being. If so these may even be charged just like in the case of molecules in an emulsion and stay a long time in the air repelling each other, but when the charge is removed they coagulate and fall to the ground. I have studied these when fabricating an emulsification plant. We used an emulsification catalyst (Amines) in this process to add electrical charges. Who knows , the spices we used in our food may be doing that job to fight the disease and prevent blood clots.

    Some points for our medics and researchers to ponder (or food for thoughts)!.
